On Monday night, paramilitary illegal Israeli colonizers attacked a medical vehicle of the Tulkarem governmental hospital transporting medicine and lab samples near Beita town, south of Nablus in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

In a statement, the Palestinian Health Ministry said the vehicle was rushing urgent supplies of medicine and lab samples when the colonizers hurled stones at it, shattering its windshield and windows.

The Health Ministry added that the attack caused a significant delay in the arrival of the medicine and lab supplies and anxiety attacks among the team transporting them.

It also denounced another attack targeting a Palestinian Red Crescent Society ambulance earlier in the evening in Huwwara town, south of Nablus.

The Health Ministry said the escalating Israeli crimes and violations, especially the targeting of hospitals, medical centers, ambulances, and medical teams, are seriously escalating in Nablus and many parts of the occupied West Bank, and called on the international community to intervene and oblige Israel to respect and abide by all related international treaties.

WAFA: “ICRC says alarmed by Israeli attack on ambulance vehicles in Huwwara”

RAMALLAH, Thursday, March 30, 2023 (WAFA) – The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in the occupied Palestinian territories expressed today its concern over an attack by Israeli settlers earlier this week, which targeted two ambulance vehicles in the town of Huwwara, south of Nablus.

Last Monday, rampaging Israeli settlers attacked two ambulances and their staff in the town of Huwwara while on humanitarian duty. The settlers hurled stones at the two vehicles, smashing their windshields. They also shouted profanities at healthcare workers who were in the vehicles.

“We are deeply concerned about a recent attack on a Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance in Huwwara, which damaged the vehicle, caused delays in health care services and endangered the safety of healthcare workers and patients,” ICRC said in a Facebook post.

“We remind all actors of their obligation to ensure that healthcare workers, their equipment and facilities are respected and protected,” the committee added.

The Palestine Red Crescent Society had issued a statement at the time, confirming that it “considers with great concern the occupation forces’ obstruction of medical personnel while performing their humanitarian duty, which puts the safety of civilians at risk.”
